When should I book my travel and accomodation?

CASI courses require minimum numbers to run and while most courses do run, some do not. It is therefore very important you do not make any travel arrangements, until the course is confirmed to be happening. Simply registering for a course is not a confirmation that the course will ultimately run.

How old do I have to be?

You must be 15 years old by the first day of the course.

What if the weather sucks?

Courses will run regardless of weather conditions. The only time a course will be cancelled would be due to either no snow, or the hill being closed due to extreme weather conditions such as severe snow storms, lightning storms, intense high winds, etc.

How good do I need to be?

You should have solid intermediate riding skills. Be able to link turns easily and smoothly on both your toe and heel sides and be in control of your board at all times. Remember, this is a course that teaches you how to become an instructor therefore only half of your overall mark is for your riding skills.

What are the specific riding skills required?

You should be able to ride in control. Keep a consistent speed regardless of terrain, pitch and snow conditions (on intermediate terrain – blue runs). Complete round, finished turns. Ride with your knees flexed. Have the ability to slowly demonstrate a big, wide turn. Have the ability to demonstrate at a very slow speed, basic snowboarding maneuvers such as side slipping & pendulum without losing your balance. The ability to change the size of your turns from large to medium to smaller. Make sure you review the Level 1 Riding Standards video for more info on the riding requirements.

I’ve never taught before…

No problem – that’s what the course is all about. The Evaluators are there to teach you how to teach so you’ll be able to go out and give a great first lesson to new snowboarders. The teaching portion makes up half of your mark. As an instructor, your job is to teach and demonstrate. If you are outgoing, self-confident, and speak audibly and clearly, you are likely the type of person who will do well in the teaching portion of the course. It is also important to be on time, pay attention and ask questions when needed. Be involved and have fun!

I took the course and failed, now what do I do?

If you’ve failed both the riding and teaching components, you’ll have to take the full course over again.

I took the course and only passed part of it, now what do I do?

If you’ve failed either the riding or teaching components, you have 2 years from the date of the course to retake the portion failed. If it is riding, you’ll attend Day 1, and if it is teaching, Day 2.

I’ve passed my Level 1 and want to take another course…

Check out the other courses available on our website and as a member you can register on-line for a Level 2 Instructor course or Park Instructor 1 course.

Can I achieve the Level 1 and Level 2 certification in the same season?

Yes – there is no mandatory waiting time between taking the Level 1 and Level 2 course. However, we strongly recommend that you obtain some teaching experience between the two courses, particularly if you have not been snowboarding for many years, and have limited or no teaching experience in other capacities. Please review the Level 1 and Level 2 Standards videos at our YouTube channel.

CASI courses require minimum numbers to run and while most courses do run, some do not. It is therefore very important you do not make any travel arrangements, until the course is confirmed to be happening. Simply registering for a course is not a confirmation that the course will ultimately run.

How old do I have to be?

There is no age requirement however, you must be a current Level 1 Instructor.

What will the Level 2 get me?

To start with, you’ll get training that will allow you to teach intermediate riders. With this, you’ll get more opportunities to teach higher-end lessons, as well as a pay raise (depending on your resort’s policies).

What do I have to do to pass?

Level 2 instructors needs to have solid intermediate riding skills. You should be comfortable riding at moderate speeds on most blue terrain, including blue and black runs. You’ll need to demonstrate that you can carve the snowboard (leaving a “pencil line” in the snow), as well as make short-radius turns on black runs. Teaching wise, you should be comfortable talking in front of a group of experienced riders, and demonstrating intermediate and advanced-level manoeuvres.

Please view the Level 2 standards video and Course Guide so you know the exact standards.

Should I have teaching experience?

Teaching experience helps. If you’ve been teaching beginner lessons for a season or so, you should be fine. CASI recommends that you have experience teaching (approx. 45 hours), in order to help you be successful in the Level 2. This is just a recommendation – all Level 1 members are welcome to take the Level 2 certification.

I only passed part fo the course, what do I do now?

If you’ve failed either the riding or teaching components of the Level 2 course, you have 2 years from the date of the course to retake the portion failed. The Level 2 re-test is a two-day re-evaluation (if required). If it is the riding component, you’ll attend Day 1 & 2, and if it is teaching component, Day 3 & 4.

7 Day Translated Courses

The Level 2 Translated Courses requires an extra 3 days to allow us to keep the same standards and quality of instruction. As all verbal communication will be translated, these 3 extra days allow time for the evaluators to give all students the same attention they would receive on a 4 day english course.
